Built between 1901 - 1909, this 6,855 foot long suspension bridge
connects Manhattan with the Borough of Brooklyn. Like the other
three East River Bridges, it provides access to pedestrians, bicyclists,
automobiles and it's one of three Manhattan bridges to carry trains....In
this case it's the B, D & Q lines. I've read about how this is considered
to be one of the more attractive bridges in the city. There's an
ongoing plan to expand on it's existing pedestiran and bike paths,
and complete repair by 2008. It's estimated that more than 78,000
vehicles crossed the bridge on your average 1998 day....The bridge's
ends are at: Chinatown's Canal Street in Manhattan and Flatbush
Ave in Brooklyn.
PS...Did you know this is the strongest of the 4 east river crossings?
